KSUT will broadcast live from Pagosa Folk N' Bluegrass Festival from noon until 2:30 PM on Saturday (6/7). If you can't make it to Reservoir Hill, tune-in and catch full sets by the Railsplitters and MilkDrive. 

The Jon Stickley Trio joins us at 11 a.m. this Friday (June 6th) for an in-studio performance and interview with Jim Belcher. The JS3 plays the Pagosa Folk'n Bluegrass Festival this weekend and will perform tunes from their self-titled debut. Four Corners fans first fell in love with Jon's virtuosity in the Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band — a Durango outfit that won the RockyGrass band competition in 2005. He's since appeared regionally as a member of the Biscuit Burners, Town Mountain and Shannon Whitworth's band.

Prior to their performance of "Grace" at the Community Concert Hall on Friday night (May 2), ETHEL will be in the KSUT studios for an interview and performance at 11 a.m. Friday. Acclaimed as “indefatigable and eclectic” (The New York Times), “vital and brilliant” (The New Yorker), and “one of the most exciting quartets around” (Strad Magazine), ETHEL invigorates the contemporary music scene with exuberance, intensity, imaginative programming, and exceptional artistry.

The Americana Project presents 13 year old guitar prodigy Jaden Carlson in a benefit concert Thursday (5/1) at Pagosa Springs High School Auditorium at 7 PM.  We look forward to having Jaden join us for live music and conversation Thursday at 2 PM.

Prior to the screening of her "Music from the Big House" documentary and performance with the San Juan Symphony, Canadian blues singer Rita Chiarelli will join Jim Belcher for an interview and songs live in the KSUT studios at 1:06 p.m. Wednesday (April 23). Known as Canada's Queen of the Blues, Chiarelli performed with inmates in Louisiana's Angola Prison, which was once the bloodiest correctional facility in America. The documentary will be screened free at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Durango Arts Center.

Hear The Railsplitters before they play this week's 20th annual Durango Bluegrass Meltdown when they come to the KSUT studios for an interview and live performance Friday (4/11) morning at 11. A Colorado band, The Railsplitters have a musical range that sets them apart from other up-and-coming bluegrass acts. Calling on genre influences from roots/Americana, country twang, 50's doo wop, modern pop and, of course, good ol' fashioned rock 'n' roll, they've been wowing listeners at home in Colorado and beyond.

Join us Tuesday (4/8) afternoon at 1:30 for an interview with filmmaker Christine Funk about her documentary, "The Tao of Bluegrass: A Portrait of Peter Rowan." The film will be shown at 12 noon Sunday at the Animas City Theatre during the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown.
